how do I delete items


Hello,

The easiest way to delete items on your PC is by moving your pointer on it, then right click on it and select delete.

Remember though that when you do this, it is still on your PC, and if you want to get rid of it totally, just go and double-click on the recycle bin on your desktop, then delete the same file from it.

Alternatively, if you want to delete files COMPLETELY without letting it pass through recycle bin at all, when you are deleting it, just press and hold down the shift key while clicking on delete.

This deletes the item totally from your system and it will not even pass through the recycle bin.

Please be careful when you are using this 2nd option because any file you delete this way has left your PC TOTALLY.

Hope this helps.
Goodluck
